I got a h1b approval for my cap exempt premium processed case but they validity was given for 7 months.

My employer had shown details that the project had work for me till 2020.

Any idea why would USCIS just given approval for 7 months.

Is that done by them to later on give denials when petition is sent for extension after 7 months.

The next interview date is after 1.5 months leaving just 5 months of validity.

Should i go for stamping first and then go for extension once in the US ?

Will visa office create issues while stamping as the validity is only for 5 months on the date of the interview ?

Is this the current trend with H1B approvals regards validity?

Any users facing similar issues, kindly provide your views ?

Any guidance would be helpful.
